October arrived with a preview of chilly fall weather, letting us break out our jackets and sweaters again. Not to mention all the extra fall gear like hats, scarves, and vests. Style mavens Alexandra Nicole and Laura Boswell point out the fun in layering – assembling your favorites all in one fantastic outfit.
Reuniting from the summer style feature, their babies Jack and Leighton show that layering up is both stylish and functional.
“Not only does layering provide warmth, but is also great for the accidental spit up moments!” explains Alexandra.
For Jack, Alexandra thinks of his wardrobe as representing a “little man.” With his polo style onesies and dress shirts, he works the persona of a little gentleman.
“Heaven knows that I don’t want him to grow up, but I love the grown-up style for the little boys. Vests are going to be a huge hit for boys this fall, along with rich colors, plaids, and stripes. I have observed a lot of yellow and olive on the store shelves as well as cable sweaters and zip ups,” she says about trends to try.
For Leighton, Laura often layers her outfit by adding leggings or tights underneath a dress or tunic then adds a wool peacoat. In this outfit, Leighton is wearing fleece-lined leggings with a plaid tunic and furry vest – all with details that scream style but won’t limit her ability to play her heart out.
“I also love putting her in cute beanies during the colder season. For myself, I love adding vests, ponchos, scarves, or capes to help bundle up,” she says.
The stylish duo shows that the key to layering is mixing color, pattern, and texture while allowing them to be able to peel away layers as they need to give them the perfect amount of warmth.
